A couple of days ago I posted a two line drill for training the Read Line. As I was diagramming it, I couldn’t help but think of all the possibilities that drill had to offer – you could change its formation from 4 OUT to 5 OUT, you could use all of the spots instead of just 3, you could… well, I stopped with just those two, but you could tweak it even more if you want.
So, here’s an expanded version of that original 2 Line Read Line Drill. Let me know your thoughts in the Comments.
Start with all spots filled except the point.
Put the ball on a wing, and a defender on the opposite wing.
5 must fill the empty spot.
Option 1: If x7 steps over the Read Line, 5 basket cuts and gets the pass for the lay-up.
5 gets the rebound, passes to the wing she didn’t get the lay-up pass from, and defends the original passer. This way, the ball alternates sides of the floor with every basket.
x7 rotates to the back of the shortest line.
